FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 16. 61pts. A green arrow. Our highest overall rank (151,974) of the season since GW1. On the whole we’re pretty happy and there’s nothing we can really moan about but given who’s writing this week’s intro we’ll find something to moan about! While 61pts was quite a decent score it’s worth noting that our captain, Eden Hazard, scored 30 of those points all on his own. Although, after last week’s debacle he had some making up to do! The only other players to contribute any meaningful points were Simpson, Salah & Morata. The rest are in the dog house. Before we move on we should highlight our bench. Let’s just say it’s a bloody good thing that none of them were required this week as ...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 15. We of course played our wildcard and while the results weren’t instantly remarkably ‘WOW’, we did ok, given the rotation nightmares that many seemed to suffer. We scored 55 vs an average of 47, giving us a weekly rank of 1.3mln and saw us rise in the overall ranking to 246,768 from 298k. A step in the right direction for sure and as long as it continues, we remain a happy bunch. If you remember, one of the reasons we finally played the wildcard was to sort our defence and our new crew certainly did us proud with Christensen, Mustafi and Dunk all recording clean sheets. However, the true tale of our game-week came late on in the action as Sterling and Salah came up trumps, Salah from th...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 14. BEFORE YOU READ ANYTHING ELSE… THIS WEEKS DEADLINE IS TONIGHT! 18:45 GMT Raz you have been warned! Talk about chasing last week’s points! We brought in Wilson and Pogba after they seemingly ‘hit form’ with a joint total of 29 points last time. This time… 5! In total. That’ll teach us. Or them. We are on a wildcard this week, but will they make the cut? Stay tuned to find out. In total we got 57 points which was actually ok, the average was 43 and it saw us ahem ‘rocket’ up the rankings (not that hard from such a lowly base!) from 420k to 279,771. Still a long way to go but at least it’s a jump in the right direction after three cons...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 13. Oooooh Marcos Alonso. Oooooh Marcos Alonso. We knew he’d come good in the end. Patience is a virtue. Try, try, try again. Our Spanish superstar did us proud, rewarded our loyalty and faith with a goal, clean sheet and 2bps as Chelsea swept aside West Brom with ease to send Pulis back to the job centre. Alas, Alonso was our highest scorer of the week but was closely followed by Pascal Gross whose goal on Monday night was supplemented by 3bps. A nice finish to a week, which was average. Well, very slightly above average – we scored 61pts vs an average of 56, yet it was not quite enough for a green arrow. Our third red arrow in succession takes us down to 420,608. Goals from Richarlison a...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 12. Hmmmm, our slide into mediocrity accelerated in GW11 as we scored 43pts (vs an average of 44) which was a GW rank of 2,847,986, giving us a new global rank of 406,870. Bizarrely this was the second clean sheet in a row for Alonso and Chelsea – clearly his success does not reflect to us – when we score well he doesn’t, when he does we don’t. We are clearly not meant to be together. Our City trio of Sterling, Silva and Jesus scored 5 each which is symmetrically pleasing, while Richarlison scored again and would have contributed more if Young Tom had not missed the penalty that our Brazilian hero won. The rest were rubbish – Kane (c) was another Wembley disas...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 11. It was a poor game-week for many and we were not about to let down the masses. We didn’t even break the average, scoring just 42pts vs an average of 46, which sees our ranking drop down to 348,773. Very disappointing. In a week where a load of teams saw their vice-captain come into play, sadly ours didn’t. Richarlison (c) played, sort of, did nothing, got booked and scored a point. Idiot. Our vice-captain was ironically our highest scorer – good old Firmino, we never doubted you. Gross and Sterling scored 7 each, jeez even Alonso scored 6 with a clean sheet for once and still we fell. We should have known what was to come when we left de Gea on the bench for the early...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 10. What a strange game-week. Come Saturday night with just two Sunday matches to come we were languishing badly. Our captain Sterling had persuaded Pep he was tired and was left on the bench, Jesus was also benched but did nothing in the 15mins he was given, Silva played the 90 but did nothing, de Gea for once let us down and Alonso, ah good old Alonso, the bane of our team, the man who has brought division and uprising to our meetings contributed a solitary point to our cause – even his most die-hard supporter is having trouble justifying his presence anywhere near our team. There were some positives, but they were minimal – assists for Groß and Choupo and a clean sheet for Cedric – ever...[Read More]

Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 9. Not exactly a classic week for us the last one! 8 of our players scored 4 points or less. Our top scorer was Sterling, who was actually our transfer in last time, so at least we had some modicum of satisfaction in a job well done in that respect. That he scored almost a third of our points was either simply genius or a bad reflection on the other two thirds! Almost certainly the latter. That we left good old Tom Carroll and his 8 points on the bench, and that he would have been our 3rd top scorer had we not, was simply either dumb or a bad reflection on the other 8 players! Almost certainly the latter. Captain Kane bombed but obviously in a week when most players rued the same fate it di...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 8

FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 8 Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 8. A strange gameweek which feels like a lifetime ago. The average was 51, we smashed that with 63 and two our of our own contributed 2/3 of those points! Our Spurs duo of Captain Kane and Mr Reliable Davies did us proud and frankly shamed most of the others. Another clean sheet from DDG was complimented nicely by an assist from Choupo-Moting… the rest really should look away in shame. Even the Alonso owners have switched their phones off in fear that some will try and advocate selling him this week! Would they really though, with such a favourable run of games ahead? This turn in fixtures would have tested even their resolve, surely? But we do have a panel of extremes, from the flake...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 6

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 6 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 6. We got 3 clean sheets this week. That is, unfortunately, just about the top and bottom of our highlights this week. Yeah ok, Lukaku brought us some points but it’s difficult to celebrate that when he brought almost everybody else the same points too. Likewise with Groß and his assist. We made 2 transfers last week and neither were a success with both Alli and Choupo-Moting coming in and both doing screw all for us. Alli got us a clean sheet bonus point and that was the highlight of our transfers, which says it all really. We scored 53 points. We began in a semi respectable 173k. We ended up in a semi disgraceful 463k! Onwards and upwards and all that then, here’s what we have decided to do...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 5

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 5 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 5. We compiled 60 points this week and that put us 16 points above the average. The GW rank was 500K, but it felt better than that as we jumped from 600k to 170k in the overall. With our captain Lukaku scoring, Kane grabbing a brace and Groß with a huge 18 point haul it was a good game-week for us all in all, well except for the Davies controversy. As some of you might know there was a late question posed to us from a member on the board asking why we were benching Davies instead of Ince. Some of us feeling that maybe that should be brought up again asked for a revote. It was an awkward affair as somehow Alonso was brought up again as the reason why we even had Ince and couldn’t afford a decent mid...[Read More]

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 4

FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 4 Welcome to FF247 Fantasy Football Team Gameweek 4. We scored 49 points in GW3, a miserly 6 above the average and we saw a relatively minor jump in the rankings as a result. All in all it was a bit of a miserable old GW though. 19 of our points came from just three players at the back and even two of our benched rearguard scored more than any of our midfielders or forwards, Firmino excepted. Our midfield was consistent, if nothing else, with three points each. Lukaku blanked but that was the least of our worries, given his ownership. Kane coming in as a 4 point captain was the real kick in the teeth. All in all it seemed fairly consistent with what most other managers experienced though so we aren’t panicking and playing our wildcard just yet. Ju...[Read More]
